PCYO auditions set for January

Looking for music lessons in Tampa?

The Patel Conservatory Youth Orchestra (PCYO) will hold placement auditions for its spring 2012 season.
Our youth orchestra features the Tampa Bay Youth Orchestra, Intermezzo Orchestra, Prelude Strings and an extensive Chamber Music program.

“We’re convinced that having music as part of [our kids'] every day life helps them in other areas in terms of education, art and culture and athletic activities,” said Alejandro Rojas, PCYO parent.
Through PCYO, students learn to apply skills from private lessons or school music programs as they gain orchestral ensemble experience. PCYO has performed twice at Carnegie Hall in New York City and at other prestigious institutions such as the New World Symphony in Miami.

Auditions will be heard by Gregory Ruffer, Music Chair of the Patel Conservatory. String, wind and percussion students will receive feedback on their performances from music faculty and placed in the ensemble that best suits their skill level.
Auditions will be held the following dates:
Tues., Jan. 4, 2012
5-8 p.m.

Wed., Jan. 5, 2012
5-8 p.m.
